dh_auto_build - automatically builds a package
dh_auto_build [debhelper options] [-- params]
dh_auto_build is a debhelper program that tries to automatically build a package. If a Makefile is found, this is done by running make (or MAKE, if the environment variable is set). If there's a setup.py, or Build.PL, it is run to build the package.
This is intended to work for about 90% of packages. If it doesn't work, you're encouraged to skip using dh_auto_build at all, and just run the build process manually.
This program is a part of debhelper.
